RCAHMS NMRS record HY53SE 7 according to which it may still turn out to be a settlement mound . The carved stone became the lintel of a church but has not been found in the ruins . At HY560323 lies HY53SE 8 , six hard to distinguish mounds about which there has been much conjecture but no definitive answer as to what they are . wideford Posted by wideford
